Ham and Macaroni Casserole
This ham and mac casserole has been a family favorite for about 20 years. I make it any chance I get and it makes a TON!
Unfortunately, I can’t remember where the recipe came from originally…my guess is a magazine or newspaper clipping. Anyway, like I mentioned it makes a ton so, I tend to split the recipe into 2 9×9 pans. I cook one and freeze the other!
Recipe for Leftover Ham
I love this recipe for using up leftover ham…whether it’s Christmas, Easter, or just a big Sunday supper. I don’t know about y’all, but I’m always trying to find creative ways to use up leftovers besides just having the same meal over and over again. I turn leftover ham into sandwiches, soups, and this totally scrumptious Ham and Macaroni Casserole. I also love Love LOVE this Breakfast Ham Casserole that uses up leftover ham too.
Of course, you don’t have to wait until you have leftovers to make these recipes. I’ve been known to buy a ham steak and cut it up….or if I need a really quick meal, I buy the pre-cut diced ham. It all works!
- 1 pound ham, cubed
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1 pound elbow macaroni
- 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 cup sour cream
- 10 3/4 oz cream of chicken soup (1 can)
